Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich said Sunday that not only would he attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one, he's already accepted such an invitation.

In a wide-ranging CNN interview, Kasich, a possible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, was asked whether he would attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one, despite his opposition to marriage equality.

“Sure,” he answered.

Kasich said that after consulting with his wife, he agreed to attend the upcoming wedding of a gay friend.

“Just because you're opposed to something doesn't mean you don't care about your friends, other human beings,” he answered.

“My friend knows how I feel about the issue, but I'm not here to have a war with him. I care about my friend, so it's pretty simple for me. I don't want to be making big statements about any of this.”

Other Republicans are being asked the same question. Florida Senator Marco Rubio was in agreement with Kasich, while former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum said that attending such a ceremony would be a “violation of his faith.” Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said Saturday that he has attended the wedding reception of a gay relative.
